BLP sources updates following death of article subject

Carcharoth
Just read that US chemistry professor Sherwood Rowland had died, and
went to the Wikipedia page to see if it had been updated.

I was initially worried to see a BLP sources tag on the article, but I
was getting an old cached version:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Frank_Sherwood_Rowland&oldid=480712752

The current article has been tweaked and updated somewhat and the tag removed:

http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Frank_Sherwood_Rowland&oldid=481524901

Though the source we provide reporting his death is still only an external link.

It is a bit depressing to think that some tagged pages only get dealt
with when they become topical.
